PAINT is a protective coating. 
The right kind of Paint is 
acid-resisting, waterproof 
and durable ; neither dries out 
nor dusts off, does not check, 
peel or flake. When properly 
applied, it stays where it is placed 
until in the course of time, it 
wears out like everything else — 
then a second coat is needed. 
The manufacturer who claims 
his paint is everlasting, knowing- 
ly misleads the consumer, for 
he promises more than he can 
perform, and, if the consumer 
expects the impossible, he de- 
ceives himself and assists the 
manufacturer in the deception.

I SPECIAL PRESEH^.OT]VE: RMNTSl 



T^HE object of this booklet is to present in a concise manner the 
I properties and uses of the various paint preparations manufactured 
by The Standard Paint Company. 
In glancing over the following pages it will be observed that the products 
described come within the category of "Special Paints" rather than "Or- 
dinary Paints." A Special Paint is manufactured for a definite purpose, 
whereas Ordinary Paints include house paints and coatings that may be 
put to a variety of uses. 

To obtain successful results with any Paint, it is primarily essential that 
it be manufactured skilfully and honestly. A part of the responsibility, 
however, falls upon the consumer, and it is equally important that he 
should know how to correctly use the Paint. In the case of a Special Paint 
he should understand for what particular purpose it is intended. The 
very best Paint is doomed to failure if used under adverse conditions, or 
for purposes for which it is not adapted. 

Responsibility, therefore, is divided equally between the manufacturer and 
the consumer, and to fully comply with our portion thereof we issue this 
booklet. Preservative Coatings may be grouped into three general classes: 

First Oil Paints 

Second .Solvent Paints 

Third Varnishes 

OIL PAINTS consist hirgely of Linseed Oil mechanically mixed with 
powdered colored pigments. They dry by oxidation, or in other 
words, by absorption of atmospheric oxygen. During this process 
the oil gains about 12 per cent, in weight, becoming converted 
into a tough, flexible film. Flexite Paints, Structural Brand Paints 
and Masonry Finishes come within this class. 

SOLVENT PAINTS consist of inert gums, dissolved in volatile solvents 
with or without the addition of pigments. These do not dry by 
oxidation, but set by the evaporation or loss of the solvent. Sol- 
vent Paints will not spread over as great an area as oil paiats. 
S P C Flexible Iron Paint, Peacock Ready Roofing Paint, P & B 
Paint, SPG Non-Inflammable Paint, Boiler & Stack Paint, and 
the Star and Special Brands of Asphaltum Paint are included in 
this class. We use no coal tar in any of our paints. 

VARNISHES are intermediate between the other two classes. They do 
not contain powdered pigments, but consist of gums combined 
with linseed oil and dissolved in a volatile solvent. They dry 
partially by evaporation and partially by oxidation. This class 
includes the SPG Asphaltum Varnish, S P C Floor Varnish and 
SPG Cement Floor Filler. 

The tables on page 16 convey a general idea for what purpose the 

above coatings are to be used. A fuller description, however, will be found 

in the text under each heading.

^^ OIL F> Ai ^rr 3 Jl 




TLEXITE PAINTS 

(Metcil Preservative) 



COLORS:— Black, Red, Olive, Green, Grey and Light Grey, also 
, Graphite, (Dark Grey,) 

COMPOSITION: — They contain inert pigments ground impalpably 
fine, in pure linseed oil combined with other substances of a peculiar 
nature, the function of which is to overcome the inherent porosity and water- 
absorbing properties of the oil, thus rendering it moisture repellent and 
increasing its weather resistance. 

FLEXITE PAINTS contain as small an amount of drier as is 
consistent with fairly rapid drying qualities. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— FLEXITE PAINTS dry 
by oxidation in from 12 to 24 hours under normal conditions, forming 
lustrous coats, which retain their original gloss for an exceptionally long 
period. They cover well, spread easily and work freely under the brush. 
When dry the coatings will resist the actions of lubricating oil, petroleum, 
etc. They stand up exceptionally well under exposure to locomotive gases 
and other corrosive fumes. 

USES:— FLEXITE PAINTS are recommended for all metal work 
exposed to the weather, such as structural steel, iron or metal buildings, 
bridges, steel cars, car trucks, metal roofs, fences, gas holders, etc. 

They are not intended for metal work continually submerged or 
immersed in liquids for long periods at a time. 

APPLICATION:— FLEXITE PAINTS should be applied in two 
coats, or one coat may be applied over a prime coat of red lead and oil. 
The metal surface should be absolutely clean and free from moisture, 
grease, rust, mill scale, dirt and loose or detached coats of paint. The 
paint should not be applied in rainy or 
freezing weather and only when all 
surfaces are thoroughly dry. Stir 
well, so as to bring the pigment into 
uniform suspension. They will spread 
600 to 700 square feet to the gallon, 
depending upon the condition of the 
surface. 

New galvanized iron before paint- 
ing should first be treated with a special 
preparation which we can recommend 
for the purpose. This treatment is 
absolutely essential in order to prevent 
subsequent peeling, as no oil paint will 
of itself hold on galvanized iron. In 
case thinning is found necessary, use 
only pure spirits of turpentine. 




STRUCTURAL BRAND PAINTS 

COLORS:— Black, Red, Yellow, Green, also Graphite. (Dark Grey.) 

COMPOSITION :— These are good durable paints made on the same 
order as the PLEXITES, but with a slightly lower quality oil. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— Dry by oxidation in from 
24 to 36 hours under normal conditions. Work easily and spread well, 
although they will not spread quite as far as the FLEXITE PAINTS. 

USES:— STRUCTURAL BRAND is recommended for all general 
exterior work, both for wood and for metal, where, for any reason, an oil 
paint lower in price than FLEXITE is required. 



RU-BER-INE 



COLOR:— Black, Red, and Green. 

This is a unique product, composed of the same ingredients that have 
been used for over twenty-five years in manufacturing the weather-coating of 
RU-BER-OID ROOFING. 



CHARACTERISTICS:— RU-BER-INE has much greater penetrat- 
ing properties than the ordinary asphalt paints and, unlike them, does not 
dry out upon exposure to the weather, but retains its pliability and tough- 
ness for a long time. It will adhere to any surface and will dry fairly firm 
in 12 to 24 hours. 

USES: — Designed for use prin- 
cipally as a coating for prepared 
felt roofing, but is likewise highly 
efficient for metal roofing. It will 
withstand the action of smoke and 
fumes exceptionally well, and will 
hold its color. 

APPLICATION : — It spreads 
about 200 square feet per gallon on 
felt roofing, and 225 to 250 square 
feet on metal. One good coat is 
usually sufficient. It may be thinned 
with naphtha if necessary. 





MASONRY PAINTS 



s p c 

DAMPPROOFING PAINT 



COLOR :— Black. 



COMPOSITION:— Consists of a highly waterproof and weatherproof 
basCj dissolved in a volatile solvent. 

CHARACTERISTIC. PROPERTIES:— Dries by evaporation to a 
tacky coating in from 12 to 21 hours. It attaches itself firmly to all 
varieties of masonry^ and possesses the additional feature of permitting 
the subsequent application of plaster or cement directly upon the layer of 
paint, forming a tenacious bond therewith. It prevents all external moisture 
or dampness from entering the plaster or cement, avoiding the possible 
formation of stains and discolorations, and assists in maintaining an 
even temperature in the building. When used on the inside of buildings 
not to be plastered, heavy whitewash may be applied over it. 

USES: — For dampproofing foundation walls, floors or any masonry 
that may be exposed to moisture. In brick buildings, when applied on the 
inside of exposed walls, it dispenses with the necessity of furring and lath, 
thus effecting an economy in both cost and space. 

APPLICATION: — The surface of the masonry should be finished 
as smoothly as possible, and all joints should be well filled. The paint 
should not be applied to wet surfaces, but it wiU, however, form a bond with 
masonry that is but slightly damp. It needs no stirring and is supplied 
ready for use. Apply -a liberal coat, taking care to cover the surface welL 

Where the masonry surface is smooth, one coat of S P C DAMP 
PROOFING PAINT will prove sufficient. It is' recommended, however^ that 
two coats be applied to avoid de- 
fective joinings and pin-holes and to 
insure a good even surface, since the 
porosity of the wall may not be 
entirely uniform. Twenty-four 
hours should be allowed to elapse 
before applying the plaster over it. 
The paint will spread from 60 to 
100 square feet per gallon, depend- 
ing upon the condition of the under- 
lying surface. S P C DAMP 
PROOFING PAINT will effectively 
prevent all inroads of dampness, but 
it is not recommended to withstand 
the direct and continuous action of 
water. See page 7 for S P C Clear 
Damp Proofing paint for OUTSIDE 
of walls. 




S P c 
CLEAR DAMPPROOFING PAINT 

COLOR: — Transparent and recommended for outside work. 

COMPOSITION: — Consists of a colorless base and solvents. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— It will cover about 400 
square feet per gallon and spreads easily. 

USES: — Designed especially for the outside of brick or cement struc- 
tures where leakage through the walls occurs, and where it is not convenient 
to waterproof the walls on the inside, or to apply a colored paint on the 
outside. It will darken cement slightly, but its effect is hardly noticeable 
on brick work. 

The S P C CLEAR DAMPPROOLING PAINT carries a greater 
percentage of base than is found in most other clear paints of this character. 

APPLICATION:— Care should be taken to see that the paint is well 
brushed on and thoroughly fills all voids. Two or three coats should be 
applied. To obtain best results the paint should be spread during warm 
or moderate weather, as it will congeal at low temperatures. 

(See page 6 for S P C DAMPPROOFING PAINT for the inside 
of walls before plastering.) 



S P c 
MASONRY FINISH 

COLORS: — Natural, Cream, Mentone Yellow, Brick Red, Caenstone, 
French Caenstone, Cement Grey and White. 

COMPOSITION: — Consists of a flat-drying colored enamel. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— Spreads about 200 square 
feet per gallon and is highly weather resisting. 

USES:— S P C MASONRY 
FINISH is designed principally for 
use on brick or cement walls, either 
inside or outside. The first coat 
should be allowed to dry 24- hours be- 
fore applying the second coat. When 
used on the outside of walls more than 
two years old S P C MASONRY 
FINISH may be applied in two coats 
without the use of the Primer. On 
walls that have stood for a shorter 
time, S P C MASONRY PRIMER 
should be used for the first coat, and 
S P C MASONRY FINISH as the 
second or finishing coat. 




SPG 
MASONRY PRIMER 

This material should not be applied until the masonry has been al- 
lowed to cure 3 to 4 ^veeks. The walls must be thoroughly dry, particularly 
if they are painted on the inside, as any moisture sealed in the walls, is 
sure to work its way out and injure the coating. S P C MASONRY 
PRIMER should be allowed 24- hours to dry before following with the 
second coat— S P C MASONRY FINISH.

S P C CEMENT FLOOR FILLER (Clear) 
For First Coat 



AND 

S P C CEMENT FLOOR FINISH (In Colors) 
For Second Coat 

COLORS: — The Filler is Transparent. The Finish is manufactured 
in eight standard shades. 

COMPOSITION:— The Finish consists of a varnish with colored 
pigments. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— The Filler combines with the 
free alkali in the cement, forming a substance which inhibits further action 
and renders tlie floor liard and dustless. 

The colored Finish dries to a hard, 
enamel surface in 12 to 21- hours. 

USES: — The friction to which a 
cement floor is ordinarily subjected 
results in a constant dusting and sepa- 
ration of the fine particles from the 
surface. This action can be oA'ercome 
by the use of S P C CEMENT FLOOR 
FILLER as a first coat, followed 
by a second coat either of the samt 
material, or of S P C CEMENT 
FLOOR FINLSIL 





BITUMI NOUS PAINTS ^ 



Acid Re^istm^ and Protective 



P & B PAINT 

This is one of tlie oldest and bt st known aeid-resistins; paints on the 
niarket. 

COLOR:— Black. 

COMPOSITION: — Consists of a practically indestructible mineral 
base dissolved in one of the most volatile and penetrating solvents knovvn. 
It is entirely free from coal tar. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES :— It is prepared in three grades. 
No. 1, the thinnest, whicli dries almost immediately, resulting in a maximum 
<iegree of penetration, with a spreading capacity* of about 200 square feet 
to the o^allon. No. 2, is the standard grade, which dries in about a quarter 
-of an hour^ and spreads about 150 square feet to the gallon. No. 3 
possesses a fairly heavy body, forms a thick surface coating, dries in about 
a half hour, and spreads in the neighborhood of 100 square feet to the 
gallon. All three grades will dry to highly lustrous, hard, black coatings, 
which will withstand the action of acids, alkalies, brine and other corrosive 
solutions, and will not soften at temperatures under 195° F. They will not 
however, resist the action of oils, lubricants and petroleum vapors. 

USES: — Suitable for coating pipes, cables, condensers, etc. When dry 
it is absolutely odorless and tasteless, and may therefore be used to 
advantage on the interior of receptacles to contain water, cider, vinegar, 
etc., without danger of tainting the liquids. It may also be used for 
lining vats, tanks, barrels and casks. It is unequalled for protecting the 
floors, sills and other parts of stock, dairy and refrigerator cars, subjected 
to the action of water, urine, brine, etc. It is adapted for work around 
smelters, for painting cyanide tanks; 
also for cold-storage and ice-plants, 
etc. The heavy grade is especially 
adapted for waterproofing brick work, 
cement and concrete, and for all sub- 
merged or underground work, includ- 
ing cables and conduits. 

APPLICATION:— P & B PAINT 
need not be stirred or mixed, but is 
ready for instant application. It 
should be flowed on quickly, owing to 
its rapid drying properties, and for 
this same reason all packages should 
be kept tightly sealed when not in use. 
to prevent thickening. In case thinning 
is found necessary, use nothing but 
P & B THINNER, which may be pro- 
<:ured from the manufacturers.

r^ 







P & B FAIST— Continued 

CAUTION :--Care should be exercised not to use P & B PAINT in 
the vicinity of a flame, as the solvent is highly inflammable^ and owing to 
its penetrating vapors, it should not be aj^plied in confined spaces where 
there is poor circulation of air. For such places including the interiors of 
tank cars use S P C NON-INFLAMMABLE PAINT. 



SPECIAL P & B PAINT 

COLOR:— Black. 

COMPOSITION:— Special P & B PAINT is precisely the same as 
the regular brand, with the exception of the solvent. Regular P & B 
PAINT throws off heavy vapors i>ossessing a somewhat strong odor, but 
by using a different solvent. Special P & B PAINT is rendered practical- 
ly odorless, which makes it particularly desirable for use in confined spaces. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— Special P & B PAINT is 
prepared in one grade corresponding to regular P & B PAINT No. 2, and 
possessing the same spreading capacity and but slightly slower drying 
properties. The characteristics of the Special P & B PAINT when dry 
are precisely the same as the regular P & B PAINT. 

USES:— Same as for P & B PAINT, but particularly adapted for 
confined places, where gases given off by the latter might be found objec- 
tionable. It should not be used in the vicinity of a flame, as the vapors are 
inflammable. 

APPLICATION:— Apply the same as P & B PAINT. Should thin- 
ning be necessary, use Special P & B THINNER, which may be obtained 
from the manufacturers. 



S P c 
NON-INFLAMMABLE PAINT 

COLOR :— Black, 

COMPOSITION:— Possesses all the virtues of P & B PAINT, but 
differs from this and the Special P & B PAINT in that its vapors are 
neither toxic nor inflammable. The base used is precisely the same, the only 
difference being in the nature of the solvent. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES :— It dries in about two hours, 
and the dried coating is serviceable up to temperatures of 180° F. It spreads 
the same as No. 2 P ^' B PAINT: viz., 150 square feet to the gallon. 

USES: — It may be used in confined spaces, where a naked light must 
be employed, as its vapors will not ignite at temperatures under 125^"' F.. 
but care sliould be taken to provide free access of air during its application, 
otherwise the vapors given off will displace the air and interfere with 
respiration. It is particularly adapted for interiors of tank cars, vats, 
cooling rooms, etc., and for use by tanners and cider and vinegar manu- 
facturers. It may be used on either wooden or metal surfaces. 

APPLICATION:— It dries somewhat slower than No. 2 P & B 
PAINT. Should the paint thicken bv evaporation of the solvent, do not 
use anything but the S P C NON-INFLAMMABLE THINNER which 
may be procured from the manufacturers. 

10 



S P c 
FLEXIBLE IRON PAINT 

COLORS:— Black and Maroon. 

COMPOSITION :— A tough, rubbery inert base, dissolved in a suit- 
able volatile solvent^ and ground with pigments. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— Dries by evaporation in from 
two to three hours, forming an elastic, durable, lustrous, weatherproof coat, 
which will not check, melt, blister or peel. 

USES: — Especially adapted for painting metal roofs and gutters,. 
and all interior metal work, such as machinery, tanks and the like. 

BLACK FLEXIBLE IROX PAINT is recommended for the under- 
frame work of cars, trolley poles, fenders, etc., and for metal or wood 
work submerged underground, or immersed in water. It will be found 
valuable for coating ice cans as it will not chip at low temperatures, and 
on account of its body will stop leaks in old cans. BLACK FLEXIBLE 
IRON PAINT is likewise a fair insulator and will withstand approximately 
300 volts per thousandth of an inch. 

When dry, both the BLACK and the MAROON FLEXIBLE IRON 
PAINT will withstand temperatures up to 145° F. without softening. 
FLEXIBLE IRON PAINT should not be used where it is liable to come 
in contact with alkalies, nor will it resist the action of lubricating oils or 
petroleum vapors. 

The paint may be prepared for dipping by the addition of turpentine. 



APPLICATION :— Have surface 
absolutely clean. The paint should be 
stirred thoroughly to bring the pig- 
ments into uniform suspension. Will 
spread in the neighborhood of 250 
square feet per gallon. Should it be 
found that the paint thickens, due to 
the evaporation of the solvent, it may 
be brought back to its original con- 
sistency by thinning with turpentine. 

As the vapors are inflammable, 
care should be taken not to apply the 
paint in the vicinity of an exposed 
flame. 




11 



STAR BRAND ASPHALTUM PAINT 

(A Medium Grade) 



COLOR:— Black. 

COMPOSITIOX: — Consists of asphalt dissolved in a volatile sol- 
vent. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— It dries by evaporation to a 
firm and lustrous coating in about two and a half hours. 

USES: — Recommended for general purposes and particularly for ap- 
plication to rough machinery, pipes, 
gas meters and other metal or wooden 
implements which are not to be sub- 
jected to extreme service or rough 
usage. Will not withstand the action 
of lubricating oils or the effects of 
severe exposure. 

APPLICATION:— If the paint ^ 
thickens, it may be brought to its orig- S 
inal consistency by thinning with "^ 
benzine. Spreads about 250 square 
feet to the gallon. 




SPECIAL ASPHALTUM PAINT 

COLOR :— Black. 

COMPOSITION:— Consists of asphalt dissolved in a volatile sol- 



vent. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES :- 
three to five hours. 



-Dries by evaporation in from 



USES: — Recommended for use where long wearing qualities are not 
essential. This is a low priced competition grade of paint which obviously 
cannot be relied upon for long exposure to weather. For protecting metal 
parts in transit or for temporary protection, this paint will be found an 
excellent and economical material. It forms a glossy coat, and spreads 
250 feet per gallon. Should the paint thicken from loss of solvr-nt, it may 
be thinned with benzine or naphtha. 



19 



S P c 
BOILER AND STACK PAINT 

COLOR :~Black. 

COMPOSITIOX: — A varnish-like preparation designed to withstand 
high temperatures, exposure to the weather and corrosive fumes. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— Dries by evaporation, but the 
coating hardens upon being subjected to the action of heat, causing it to 
undergo a process of baking. This results in the formation of a smooth^ 
hard, glossy coating which will neither peel or blister. Care should be taken 
not to apply the paint near an open fire, although it may spread without 
danger of igniting on warm surfaces, 

USES: — For application to 
boiler fronts, metal stacks, steam 
pipes, radiators, etc. It is not rec- 
onmaended for surfaces heated higher 
than 600^ to 700° F. 

APPLICATION : — Have sur- 
faces absolutely clean and preferably 
cold. When applied to cold sur- 
faces the coating ^vill air dry in 
about six hours, and will then harden 
solely upon heating. It spreads in 
the neighborhod of 250 square feet 
to the gallon, and may, if necessary, 
be thinned with benzine. 




PEACOCK BRAND READY ROOFING PAINT 

COLOR:— Black. 

COMPOSITIOX: — Consists of an asphalt base dissolved in a volatile- 
solvent. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— Dries by evaporation to a 
tough, elastic coating, in from three to five hours. 

USES: — Adapted for painting ready roofings. 

APPLICATION:- The surface of the roofing should be dry and free 
from dirt. This paint will spread in the neighborhood of 200 square feet, 
to the gallon. 

13 



SPG 
ASPHALTUM VARNISH 

COLOR:— Black. 

COMPOSITION: — Consists of a mixture of high grade asphalt, com- 
Dined with pure linseed oil and solvent. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES:— Air dries to a dust-free 
coating in about two hours^ and sets to an extremely hard and highly 
resistant coat in 12 to 18 hours, which will withstand abrasion and hard 
wear. It is adapted for both indoor and outdoor wood and metal work, 
and will maintain its lustre for a long time upon exposure to the weather* 
The dried coating will resist the action of lubricating oil, and will not soften 
up to a temperature of 212° F, 

USES : — For high grade machinery 
locomotive cabs, tenders, passenger car 
equipment iron work, such as hand rails, 
truss rods, door posts and sills, motor 
and dynamo cases, etc. 

APPLICATION :— S h o u 1 d be 
flowed on, and will form a smooth coat, 
free from brush marks. The surface 
should be perfectly clean, and free from 
moisture, grease and rust. The varnish 
needs no stirring, and it will spread in 
the neighborhood of 500 square feet to 
the gallon. If necessary turpentine 
should be used as a thinner. 




SPG 
FLOOR VARNISH 

COLOR ;— Transparent. 

COMPOSITION: — Good varnish gums combined with linseed and 
China wood oil, dryers and solvent. 

CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES :-Air dries to a dust-free coat 
m about four hours and forms a glossy, tough and durable coat in 24 to 
48 hours. 

S P C Floor Varnish is pale in color — flows verv readily under the 
brush and contains sufficient oil to impart to it an iinusuil degree of extreme 
toughness. 

USES:— For indoor woodwork only. It answers admirablv for floors, 
furniture and trimming. It will not easily scratch or mar. 

APPLICATION:— The wooden surface should he sand-papered 
Muooth, well filled, rubbed down and then one or two coats of S P C Floor 
\ am.sh applied. After a 24-hour interval it may be rubbed down if desired 
It wiU spread in the neighborhood of .500 sq. ft. per ^rallori .-ind in case 
of necessity can be thinned witii turpentine. 



14 



IMP ASBESTOGUM CEMENT 

The Stop Leak Cement A Material of Many Uses 

IMP ASBESTOGUM is a plastic composition^ made from asphalt, a 
volatile solvent and fibrous matter. When set it is thoroughly waterproof 
and pliable, and will hold firmly to felt or metal roofings, cement, brick 
work, wood and glass. It may be applied with a trowel. Invaluable for 
pointing up around chimneys and fire-walls or for spreading over leaky 
roofs. It may be applied to either wet or dry surfaces, and in all kinds of 
weather. Especially adapted for steam boiler settings, to make them air- 
tight, resulting in the saving of fuel, and at the same time protecting the 
wall by excluding moisture entirely. 

Put up in 5, 10 and 50 lb. cans, half barrels of about 275 lbs., and 
barrels of 150 lbs.
